My family and relatives love, love my bacon pesto pasta and they always ask me to make one whenever there’s an occasion, or simply when they are craving for it.

Did you know that it takes only two (2) ingredients to make my mean pesto sauce?   And because I’m feeling happy today I’m gonna share my secret recipe with you.  There’s nothing magic about it, really, and yet everybody raves about it.   You too can give this a try – am sure it’s going to be a hit with your family!

Here’s how I do the pesto sauce, in 4 easy steps:

First, I sauté the chopped  Double Smoked Bacon that I buy from Earle’s Delicatessen until they turn pinkish brown.   I only use this particular bacon from Earle’s and has never once substituted this with other bacon brands.  Next I pour in Clara Ole’s Cheesy Pesto Sauce (use 3 packs of the 180g sauce if you are having a big number of guests; otherwise, 2 packs will do).   Stir together and let simmer for about 3 minutes.  Lastly, mix together the pesto sauce and cooked spaghetti noodles in a large serving bowl.  No need to pour all the pesto sauce into the spaghetti noodles.   Start with about 3 big spoons of pesto sauce and mix well with the noodles before you add in more spoon sizes to reach your desired taste.   Top with lots of parmesan cheese after.

Easy, isn’t it?   =)     The cheesy pesto sauce from Clara Ole is available at all supermarkets, while Earle’s Delicatessen has branches at South Supermarket (Alabang), Ayala Avenue, Ortigas and Greenbelt I.

Try this recipe and let me know how it worked for you   =)   It sure made me a pesto pasta connoisseur in no time!
